Pierre Tremblay - The Tremblay name originates in France in the Normandy region. The earliest known Tremblay is Bernard de Tremblay who died in 1155.  Next we find records in 1167 of a Guillaume de Tremblay who made a gift of a vast domain of land to the Trappist monastery. Then we skip to Gervais du Tremblay, a blacksmith, who built a forge on lands adjoining the Trappist monastery in Tourouvre, Perche, France.  His descendants continued in this occupation in some line for several generations. One Tremblay of distinction is Father Joseph Tremblay, a man of great influence in the Richelieu administration in the early 1600's..  He was known as the confidant and lifelong associate of one of France's greatest statesman (Quarterly Review, April 1896). 
The forefather of Tremblay's in the New World was Pierre Tremblay. He was born at Saint-Malo de Randonnai about 1626. 
He came to Canada in August 1647.  We are the largest family in North America that can trace their ancestry to one man.

Did You Know?Did you know...It is said that on the stroke of midnight, farm animals acquired the marvellous and unusual gift of speech. Oxen, cows, horses, pigs, and poultry began to speak to one another and to exchange strange secrets about humans, particularly their masters. Bad luck, the risk of being struck dumb or, worse still, even death came to those who tried to spy on them. This belief was prevalent not only in France but also in Francophone Canada. Another belief says that at midnight, farm cattle kneel in the stable to worship the Infant Jesus. It is clear that these two beliefs are closely linked to the even older one that Jesus was born at midnight.

Pierre Tremblay - Ancestor of All Tremblays of America


http://www.genealogie.org/famille/tremblay/tremblay_a.htm

Pierre Tremblay - Ancestor of All Tremblays of America

All members of the numerous Tremblay families of North America are descendants of Pierre Tremblay, born in 1626 in Randonnai, a small village of Perche, a former province of northern France. His parents, Philibert Tremblay and Jeanne Coignet were married October 3, 1623 in Saint-Firmin de Normandel, a nearby village. The same Philibert, a farmer from La Filonnière, died on November 17, 1642.

The life of adventure attracted Pierre Tremblay. He was greatly influenced by the speeches of Noël Juchereau, a recruiting agent for New France, and signed a contract on April 9, 1647. With this contract, Pierre was hired by Juchereau to work for 36 months in New France. Pierre settled in the new world and then worked for farmers on the Côte de Beaupré, on the north shore of the Saint Laurence River.

In autumn of 1657, he met Ozanne Achon, a natife of Chambon, a diocese of La Rochelle. The couple signed a wedding contract before notary Aubert on September 19 and the religious ceremony was held on October 2, 1657 in Notre-Dame de Québec church. They had twelve children, ten of whom reached adulthood. Six daughters became the maternal ancestors of famous french canadian families: Roussin, Gagné, Savard, Perron, Peymard dit Laforest and Pelletier. Four sons, Pierre, Michel, Louis and Jacques married and became the founders of the four branches of the Tremblay family tree.

All his life, Pierre Tremblay worked the land. On April 4, 1659, he received a land grant in L'Ange-Gardien. On December 1, 1678, Monseigneur de Laval employed Pierre to tend a farm in Baie Saint-Paul. Pierre also helped his sons obtain land in Petite Rivière Saint-François and Les Éboulements. The ancestral land in l'Ange-Gardien was given to Jacques, the third son on March 9, 1696 by Ozanne Achon, Pierre's widow.

It recorded Ozanne was buried on December 24, 1707 at 75 years of age. Pierre, died twenty years previously. There is no record of his death or burial. Various archival documents suggest his death sometime between April 1687 and November 1689.

Census of 1667 by Marcel Gelinas

The ancestor of the most prolific of French Canadian families is listed here as a resident of Cote de Beaupre. He is Pierre Tremblay, age 40 and his wife Anne Ozanne Achon is 35. With them are five young children but more will follow.

Pierre Tremblay has more descendents in North America than any other progenitor who came over from France.

Pierre Tremblay was born in 1626 the child of Philibert Tremblay and Jeanne Coignet of Radonnay, Province of Perche, France. He had a brother Guillaume, who was born in 1634.

Pierre left France in spring of 1647 and married Ozanne Ochon (Achon) of Puyravault near LaRochelle, France in 1657. Between 1658-1677, 12 children were born to them.

Pierre died around the fall of 1688 and Ozanne died about 20 years later. Ozanne died 24th December, 1707.

1689

December 5, 1689, at the marriage of his daughter Louise, Ozanne Achon is called widow of the late Pierre Tremblay . It appears last on the marriage of his daughter Margaret, April 24, 1687. The autumn of 1688 was that of one great epidemic which caused almost 1,400 victims. His wife is also mentioned on the sick list of the Hotel-Dieu de Quebec June 20, 1689. Such mortality can explain without reporting the death of Pierre Tremblay.

A Prolific Canadian Family Creates Identification Problems by Harman W. Nichols

ARVIDA, QUE. MAY 6 (UP) - This section of Quebec is home of the fabulous Tremblay tribe.

There are more Tremblays hereabouts than there are Roosevelts in N.Y., Smith in Illinois, or fish in a well-stocked pond.

The Tremblay clan can trace it's family tree to the gentleman named Pierre Tremblay who came here with high hopes and an innate knack for keeping his name going. Pierre came from the province of Perche, France. Although he and his wife Anne had 6 sons and 6 daughters, and according to the records I found, that started something.

ONE HISTORIAN PUTS IT THIS WAY:

"Pierre had 10 acres of farm and drove 10 head (of cattle). The years went by. The boys and girls got married. The boys had a large number of children, whereas the girls had not many."

To their credit the Tremblays are a a respected and honored folk in this area.

Guillaume Tremblay is head of the school system in this city of 11,000, which was built by the Aluminum Company of Canada, Ltd. He has half a dozen of little Tremblays of his own running around the school system and so many others by the same name that he has never found time to count them.

The Aluminum Company has between 600 and 700 Tremblays on the payroll, according to how business is going. And there is no official count of how many other Tremblays in the area can trace their ancestry to father Pierre. Nobody will dispute the fact that the count of this moment is up in the many thousands.

So far as The Aluminum Company is concerned, the separation of the Tremblays on the payroll is not difficult. The workers pick up their pay by number.

But at the window of several banks in the town, it is a little different.

That's because there are 65 Tremblays named Joe. You can get a mental image of 65 guys named Joe (Jos is the proper first name although it is pronounced "Joe") standing in one line ready to cash their checks. So what happens?

The company has simplified the matters. A sort of footnote on the check identifies each of the "Joe" persons. One is listed as "Dirty Jos" because his work turns him up messy at the end of an eight-hour day. Another is identified as "Small-pox Jos Tremblay" because on of his family once had small pox. Yet another is listed as "Blacksmith" used to crawl under a horse and nail a shoe.

There are others tabbed as "Cloudy", "Defrosted", "Rusted", "Grain of Wheat", and "Thunder".

I took a little trip to Cute a' La Sauvane. On the way back, my host, one Allen Burgess, said "Let's stop and see this family." It was a beautiful farm. The lady of the house wanted to know if I would like to meet her family. She called the old man out of the barn and the youngsters from all around, 21 kids, all well dressed and cute.

"Like to have you meet my sister and her family next door," she said.

Her sister paraded her youngsters, 19 in all. The whole bunch have lifelines going back to Pierre Tremblay.

I looked in the phone book and found only one Smith. A man with a first name of John. No kin or kith of the Tremblays.

My understanding is that the Tremblay and Tromblay names are interchangeable. That they all are descendents of Pierre Tremblay and Ozanne Achon who came to Canada in the early 1600's. I am doing some research on the Tromblay name in the United States; namely a Shirley June Tromblay (3 June 1927-3 November 2010) who married Clifton Edward Newton (19 January 1914-22 February 1991). I have Shirley Tromblay as the daughter of Maurice Tromblay (22 June 1904-8 August 1982), Maurice the son of William Peter Tromblay (28 February 1859-29 May 1943), the son of Peter Tromblay (1827-?). I'm wondering what the connection to Pierre Tremblay and Ozanne Achon would be. Would appreciate any information you could provide. Thank you.
